MISSION, SD -
Officials from South Dakota's nine Native American tribes will gather with state and federal leaders on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss transportation safety on reservations.
The 3rd annual Tribal Transportation Safety Summit will bring together tribal officials to discuss effective crash reporting, road safety audits, highway safety plans and traffic-safety programs. The two-day program will also feature information about resources available to tribes from state, federal and nonprofit agencies and groups.
The event's opening session will focus on the tribes' best practices for transportation safety. Sen. Tim Johnson is also slated to address summit participants.
The summit will be held at the Rosebud Casino.
